Hey dudes! I’m DEE – An aspiring interior designer, foodie, writer, literary agent, and recovering type A creative.

When I was a kid, I told everyone who would listen that one day I would grow up and be Ty Pennington. Nowdays, that doesn’t mean much, but in the early 2000s, Ty was on TV helping families, had brand deals for practically everything, and seemingly was on every bookshelf. I wanted that-all the multi-hyphen projects that I could get my hands on. But more than anything, I wanted to share my love of interior design with everyday people that traditional design didn’t cater to.

Which brings me to today and my goal for this platform. I want to do cool stuff and share it with whoever will listen, whether that’s interior design, my favorite recipes, advice from all my favorite people, and whatever else pops in my head.

Wanna Collab?

On this blog, I share a lot of my favorite products, people, projects, and so on. I love making things as accessible as possible for people. If you see something that you think would be a great fit for my round ups or want to work on a project, design wise, blog wise, or literary wise, feel free to reach out!

Framed Mirrors on Wall

Only for today, I will seek to live the livelong day positively without wishing to solve the problems of my life all at once.
Only for today, I will take the greatest care of my appearance: I will dress modestly; I will not raise my voice; I will be courteous in my behaviour; I will not criticize anyone; I will not claim to improve or to discipline anyone except myself.
Only for today, I will be happy in the certainty that I was created to be happy, not only in the other world but also in this one.
Only for today, I will adapt to circumstances, without requiring all circumstances to be adapted to my own wishes.
Only for today, I will devote 10 minutes of my time to some good reading, remembering that just as food is necessary to the life of the body, so good reading is necessary to the life of the soul.
Only for today, I will do one good deed and not tell anyone about it.
Only for today, I will do at least one thing I do not like doing; and if my feelings are hurt, I will make sure that no one notices.
Only for today, I will make a plan for myself: I may not follow it to the letter, but I will make it. And I will be on guard against two evils: hastiness and indecision.
Only for today, I will firmly believe, despite appearances, that the good Providence of God cares for me as no one else who exists in this world.
Only for today, I will have no fears. In particular, I will not be afraid to enjoy what is beautiful and to believe in goodness. Indeed, for 12 hours I can certainly do what might cause me consternation were I to believe I had to do it all my life.

My Current Inspiration

These are currently some things that are inspiring my creative process and vision. Right now I’m really loving mixing bold textures with natural elements and distressed flooring.
